    Palin just wants to be in the news again, she's an attention junkie I think.

    Sarah Palin is an opportunist. Most successful politicians are. In this matter, no minds were changed: People who like Sarah don't like Rahm and vice versa, so it's a wash.

    I wish this thread had a poll: Are you troubled by Emanuel's use of the word ‘retarded’ in this context?

    Meh, not at all.

    I believe it is throughout his nasty little book.

    Take this for example:

    "13. Pick the target, freeze it, ersonalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...


    "...any target can always say, 'Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?' When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments.... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the 'others' come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target...'

    "One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other." (pps.127-134)"


    Now, would you say that Alinsky would consider it fair game should this be used against him? I say no. And I believe this is evidenced today when it is, liberals such as yourself scream about how unfair it is.....

    This is primarily the rules the repubs used to spread their Republo-Facism through the Bush regime, BUT it still doesn't state that you don't have to follow your own standards. So you have had a Epic Fail......

    I'm sick of the word Nazis. I think people ought to quit feeling like victims and get over themselves. No one was talking about her child, 'retarded' has been a part of everyday speech for a long time. That's why we all have to say 'developmentally delayed' now.
    So what if she does? She's not the first and won't be the last. It's what politicians do. I honestly don't see the issue here and I don't much like Palin anyway.

    Well, you're both entitled to your opinions. She took offense, you don't. Different strokes... and political opportunism and all that jazz.

    Also, Rahm Emanuel gives me hives.

    That is all.
